Native Indian Teacher Education Program (NITEP)

The Native Indian Teacher Education Program (NITEP) is a five-year program offered by UBC. Students may complete the first two years at UCFV but must complete the remaining years at UBC. Practical experience in a variety of educational settings is included.

The program is intended for persons of First Nations ancestry. It is designed to build upon the personal and cultural resources shared by First Nations persons and to prepare them for teaching positions in B.C. elementary schools. With a strong emphasis on the cultural links of all First Nations people, the NITEP program is challenging and unique.
